Global LCoS market has been analyzed both quantitatively and qualitatively in this report. Quantitative analysis includes revenues of the LCoS market across different geographies, applications and products. Qualitative analysis explains the overview of the market and includes factors like Porter's five force model, market definition, application analysis and market dynamics. Detailed discussion on drivers, restraints and opportunities are also covered in the report.
Liquid Crystal on Silicon is a new emerging display technology. The LCoS technology provides images with highest quality, resolution and contrast ratios. The starting points of the LCoS are LED and OLED technologies. The LCoS based products deliver more precise and higher quality results than the LCD and DLP. The major products based onthis technology are Full frame projectors, HMDs (Head Mounted Display), HUDs (Head Up Display), Microscopy SLM and many more. The projector market has applications in the education sector, business sector and home theatre projectors.
India, Russia, Mexico and Indonesia are the major countries using projectors in the Education sector. The HMD is majorly used in the defense for training simulations; however its application base is expanding to include gaming, research, sports, medicine and video applications. The HUD, the projectors are used in the aircraft, automotive industry as well as for simulated training purposes.
The report highlights the technologies like Ferroelectrics (F-LCoS), Nematics LCoS (NLC) and Wavelength Select Switching (WSS) and their future scope in the market. The This Markets can be categorized into different applications like Consumer Electronics, Military, automotive, Aviation and others.

Liquid Crystal on Silicon is a comparatively new and obscure display technology. Currently LCoS market is growing at 30.2% CAGR and will be worth $1.5 billion by 2018. Mostly LCoS is used in front projectors, HMD (Head Mount Display) and HUD (Head Up Display) and few other display products.
Projector is a huge market and Pico Projectors are the fastest growing product for "liquid crystal on silicon" technology. The projector market is expected to boom in 2014 due to upcoming FIFA world cup and in 2015 due to ICC cricket world cup and several upcoming sports events like American NFL, Asian games etc. Technological superiority, open technology platform and wide range compatibility will be the major driving forces of the LCoS market.
Another LCoS deploying product, HMD is majorly used across the globe for military and aviation applications for training and stimulations. Basic HMD models are also gaining popularity in gaming and video based applications. Other HMD applications are sports, research and medicine.
In HUD, LCoS based projectors are used in aircrafts, high-end cars, and across stimulation based training centers. In 2011 60 million cars were produced and out of which 12 million were high-end cars. BMW launched HUD feature in its 3 series in November 2011.
Globally, consumer electronics is the fastest growing application at 34.4% CAGR. Aviation application is using advance LCoS panels in both of its HMD and HUD products. Aviation application will grow at around 26.6% CAGR.
The above figure shows the growth of the "Liquid Crystal on Silicon" market through 2012 - 2018.
